I like Tate. I think he's more versatile. He could play any receiver position and could even be taught to run the Wildcat.
He already runs the wildcat in Charlie Weis' offense. Both he and Armando Allen have taken the snaps there, he has played both the Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams role in it. He has also lined up as a RB (he was a HS RB) and can return punts and kicks (he returned a punt last weekend vs Pitt for 80 some yards) .
Tate will be eligible to enter as a junior this year, Floyd is still a sophomore. Tate could come in from day 1 and be installed in the wildcat and on return duties and be used in multiple WR sets to help stretch defenses and eventually push Morgan/Hill/Jones for the #2 WR spot.
